Title:The ball in R^3 is a local minimizer of the optimal lattice packing density.
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Fedor Nazarov, Kent University
We will show that any 3-dimensional symmetric convex body sufficiently close to the ball admits a lattice packing of higher density than the ball itself unless it is an ellipsoid, in which case the density is the same. This is joint work with Yoav Kallus.
